THE ABOMINABLES
Bibliophile price: £2.25
'Before J. K. Rowling, there was Eva Ibbotson' - The Telegraph. The Newcastle writer died in 2010 and from this beloved author came this one last charming novel. When a gentle family of yetis is forced out of their Himalayan paradise by tourism, it is the beginning of an unforgettable road trip adventure. Across Asia and Europe they travel in search of a new home. They find themselves performing a mountain rescue in the Alps and interrupting a bullfight in Spain, before making their way to an ancestral estate in England where they believe they have discovered their new paradise. What they have actually found is the playground of big-game hunters who have their sights on the most exotic prey of them all - the Abominable Snowmen. With unforgettable characters and thoughtful messages about animal cruelty, these haunting pen and ink illustrations are by Fiona Robinson. Young Con and Ellen take these educated and civilised yetis across Europe to Lady Agatha's home in England. Utterly charming beautifully made hardback. Tiny remainder mark. Ages 8-11. 260pp.
